Intel said that “experience” pop-up stores are set to debut shortly, with the first opening in New York on November 23. The stores are designed for the holidays, and are only open until late January.
Chipzilla will offer free coffee each day, free movies on Fridays, and a showcase of PCs, tablets, and other Intel powered devices at the stores.
They are not so much stores but marketing attempts to sell products. Visitors will also be able to test-drive Intel products at home or recycle used electronics but will have to buy them somewhere else.
Intel hasn’t yet disclosed all of its retail locations or full details on the products it plans to promote in its stores and it is expected to make a few announcements over the next week. It might be the place to pick up a nice fashion bag for Christmas.
